Movember Journal 2014: Day 29 – The Final Wrap

Moustache Union Logo BannerMovember is ending… but don’t be sad. It’s been another great campaign for the Moustache Growers Union Local 416647 and all of the Mo Bros and Mo Sistas around the world.

This year The Union had 5 awesome members and I am proud to have been on the same side as my 4 teammates. Sean, Terri-Leigh, Mike and Michel are all top notch people and (with the exception of Terri-Leigh) grew killer ‘staches this month. I hope that they’re all back on board in 2015, along with old teammates and new ones alike.

This year marked the 5th Movember campaign that Sean and I have worked on together. It also brought us to our 5th Movember Challenge Karaoke Toronto event on Thursday the 20th. We had an amazing night with friends and strangers and teammates – and raised a bunch of money. Here’s how the 5 years have broken down…

2010 – $500     2011 – $1116
2012 – $1680    2013 – $2200
2014 – $2030   Total – $7526

Tilt LogoThis year we did things a little differently and are super happy with the result. We need to thank Tilt Canada for their help in setting up the Jason Rolland sings Celine challenge campaign [click to watch the video] and all of the supporters. And we also thank The Marquis of Granby for donating the Guinness Foosball Table we auctioned off on Twitter last night – which was won by Tilt Canada for a bid of $240. We know it will look great in your new Toronto offices.

Switching gears, I would also like to thank everyone who donated to my campaign/ The Union this year at Movember.ca – you are all awesome and appreciated.

Mark Murray (thanks dad)
Scott Armstrong
Jess Johnston
Jason Chan
Amy Buckley
Gunite Construction & Renovations Inc.
Howard Johnston
Jessica Law
Meghan Warby
Michel Niray
and finally, my anonymous donor.

Right now The Union sits $50 short of $3000 for our 2014 campaign – and I can tell you that I am happy with that number and proud to be part of the whole darn thing.

If you would like to help us hit $3000 and more before Movember ends, click this link right here http://moteam.co/moustache-growers-union-local-416647 and give what you can.

Made In Movember ButtonBeing part of Movember is something that I look forward to and am proud of every year. The combination of men’s cancers and mental illness hit too many people each and every day in Canada, and if I can help stop that, if we can help stop that, we are doing good.

Thank you again to everyone who supports Movember through their participation, donations, and spreading the word through FB shares, RTs, email, word of mouth and smiles on the street.

You are all awesome.
